Recipe! Fall Baked Apples

So maybe I'm going a little nuts with the fall recipes...but why not? It's a delightful way to appreciate a season that is, in my opinion, far too short. The flavors of fall, the seasonal foods, the weather, the crunch of leaves and the smell of the's the perfect time of year!

Eating these apples after a dinner of soup and fresh bread felt about as close to heaven as anyone can get on this earth. We added a little almond milk or heavy cream to them and ate them with forks...they were amazing. If you are pressed for time, you can steam them in a pan without about 2 inches of water first and bake until the topping is crisp and delicious. Brown sugar can be replaced with agave for a cleaner approach. All in all, this dessert fits the dessert criteria while remaining low calorie.

Try it and enjoy!
